We did not have a volunteer Q for Circus Maximus this week. There was talk of a hot potato Q, but YHC (Johnsonville) seized it and would not yield to others (at least until 3 min left). This is what went down, sort-of: Rapid-fire warm-up with about everything you can imagine, including, but not limited ssh, don quiotes, cherry pickers, burpees, arm circles, etc. Elevens starting with 10 KB snatches per arm on one side of the circus maximus; run to the other side and do 1 mountain climber; continue around the circus maximus to the start. Note that the…

Apparently YHC has developed a reputation of sorts. If, come 10pm on a Thursday, the Q sheet has a blank next to Twin Team, Mr. Holland has a tendency to sign up and give his compatriots a beat down they won’t soon forget – that part’s true enough. But just because today (and maybe one of the days last month) that beat down was a Sisyphus sighting, that doesn’t mean it’s always the default setting! Holland takes umbrage with Rosie on this point…though one must admit that today doesn’t provide much ammunition for Holland’s grievance. The plan *was* to be…

One Upper Middle-Ager, One Lower Middle-Ager and One Very Young attacked most of the CSAUP loop at Forest Hill Park for the Wednesday Hill Run/Roller Coaster. TYA was playing tour guide, YHC was rucking with 30 lbs sack and Husky ran/walked the 3 mile loop! This was YHC and Husky’s first time at the Forest Hill Park trail and it was amazing!  YHC thought it couldn’t get any better than North Bank/Buttermilk, but FHP is so much better. YHC thinks that TYA was getting his game plan ready for CSAUP, studying the trail, looking for advantages and setting booby traps…

22 hearty souls launched for a variety of two-wheeled or two-footed exercises…temps were sunny and 70.
